Upcoming info sessions on Arapiles/Tooan SP 19-Oct-2020 At 11:27:14 AM gordoste
Reading between the lines on this announcement, it sounds like the land council (representing TOs) seems to be agreeing not to take action over all of the damage that has happened historically, in return for some sort of plan moving forward.
This is exactly what is supposed to happen - TOs have a stick to hit PV with for poor management.

It will be interesting to see whether the plan includes climbing restrictions. To some TOs, climbers are exactly the same as tourists trampling all over Ayers Rock. A bunch of drunk hobos in the Pines don't really scream "responsible land users". It's only when they get to know us, and see all the love and care that have been given to crags over the years, that they will understand that we have a strong bond to the place.

The optimist in me hopes it's more likely that the TOs of Djurite (Arapiles) have a better understanding of climbing. Climbers are only a very minor user group in the Grampians, whereas we dominate at Djurite.
